Tiffany Doodles Challenge - Stitching

This month's challenge over at Tiffany Doodles, is to incorporate STITCHING to your project.  LOVE my sewing machine and hate having to run up 2 flights to use the good one, so I bought a smaller one for the basement - Alas, it's still in the box - need to set up a 'station' before I'm in business. 

In the meantime, I used hand stitching for both of these samples.

For my first one - I made a card for a Teacher Appreciation since school just started. I colored this image with Copics and used my blender pen (chisel tip) to lift off some color to give the school house and sidewalk a feeling of bricks/stones.  I added some stenciled clouds and some Glossy Accents to the windows before adding the stitching to the image panel as well as the background panel.  Tried to keep the mats primary for the back to school feel.

For my second card, I added some glossy accents to the lipstick, sponged around the edges with Pretty in Pink and added an arch of handstitching.  Papers are from Stampin Up.  I added a bit of diamond Stickles to the tips of the flowers to bring a little bling from the papers into the flowers.  Have to admit, out of the 2, this one is my favorite.

Remember, you have from today until September 21st to post your card on Tiffany Doodles Blog to be eligible to win a $10 gift certificate to Tiffany Doodles store.

Thanks again for stopping by!
Always love to hear your comments.
